    I made an Excel file in Excel 2000 , I then edited it in Excel 97 - I now cannot open it in Excel 2000

    Is this a compatibility issue between the two versions that I can easily solve.

    The file is large - almost 1mb, but htat should be the propblem should it?

    What can I do...

    Thanks Mathew

    IS there any error message that comes up when you try to open the file in XL2000?

    Matty: Many files that cannot be opened by 97 or 2000 CAN be opened by Excel XP and recovered. I will give it a shot for you if you don't have XP available by any other means.
